"I have the number one talkshow in England. Certainly, NBC thinks it is the time to try to do something."
Meanwhile, NBC's Paul Telegdy said: "We like Piers because he has a very sort of direct manner. He doesn't sugarcoat anything."
Morgan is already known to US audiences in his role as a judge on America's Got Talent
